Start off with her yelling at kids for being late when she is late every single day she gets there five minute after the bell like wth.
Her teaching makes no sense and if you don't know the answer to a question she will pick on you until you answer or embarrass yourself. I've talked to others in my class and they all feel the same. We say we don't understand a topic and she says to teach ourselves and offers no kind of help. I highly recommend switching out if you get her it can be a nightmare

She is not a great teacher. She is pretty slow with each topic, and towards the end of the year, when all the other classes are reviewing for the upcoming regents, our class is rushing through the last topics. We barely have time to review. She also heavily relies on the textbook when teaching us. She makes us read a chapter, and expects us to be experts on the topic ready to take a test the next day. She barely teaches. She also has a habit of picking favorites. BEWARE!

OMG!For your sake, I hope you don't get her.This is officially the WORST teacher I've ever had.I know I am not stupid because I am in honors and did excellent in Earth Science, so don't think I am lying.She is all over the place when she teaches, and she is behind pace than the other teachers. Also, when we have test she gives us questions about things she doesn't even teach in class but expects us to obtain from the textbook. Like, really?

Ericka Verderber happens to be an excellent teacher. I found her to be knowledgeable and very intelligent. However, she is one of the most difficult people I have ever dealt with. This is why her students tend to express animosity towards her. Frankly, even though I happened to get along with her, I don't blame them. She is definitely full of herself, walking in 10 minutes late and making her "grand entrance" every morning.

Verderber is a pretty good teacher, relates different situations to topics we learn about and is very passionate about her teaching. However, sometimes when we learn, topics are kind of confusing because i can't really find what specific topic we are focusing on in the particular class. Overall great teacher, but gives alot of rants.

She is such an amazing teacher because she puts a lot of effort into her class. She does her best to break down the material in a way that each student understands it..which is what all teachers should be doing. She is not only a role model but is also a teacher who cares deeply about her students. Each day I look forward to seeing her, and I never feel that way about any other teacher. Overall, she's someone you could never forget. :)

Mrs. Verderber is an amazing teacher. She explains everything very well and makes sure that everyone will understand. She also answers every question asked in class, and if she doesn't know the answer, she makes sure to find out. Her homework never takes us more than 10-15 minutes. She is often really funny, and should be on Ellen.

Ericka Verderber is definitely something else. She was a good teacher. Her main issue was that she had some kind of psychologically abnormal egotism which led many to express habitual animosity toward her at times [including myself.] It's an 8/10, EV
